usually when a msg appears saying that a is needed, it means
install the package that provides that dependency

this is a search site for rpm's
type in the required

and hit search
there may be more than page of results
just look for the package that matches your version of linux

do a google for libcxa, that should tell you what prog provides it, then you can d-load package or source. source is better, but package is easyer.
